Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1998 Week 4 Hansard (24 June) . . Page.. 1011 ..
MS TUCKER (continuing):
I will move the amendments in my name, which have been a cooperative effort with the government agency. Mrs Carnell, I guess, got her ideas from there, too. I do not know where she got them from, but that is fine; I am happy to work with them and have them in there. I believe it is very important that we have done this work. I have been pleased to do it for the committee. As I said, this is for 12 months. This is just saying, "We will stop now because we need to have a look at these issues around gambling". It is something that can be worked with.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
Bill agreed to in principle.
Bill, by leave, taken as a whole
